Long, Golden Rays of Summer Days

day lilyOnce again, the end of August is upon us. I recently wrote a blog about going back to school, and I can’t believe it’s that time again. If you’ve been around the area this summer at all, I hope you’ve been taking advantage of the many fun things the western New York region has to offer! We have wineries, trails, festivals, concerts, other shows, and two lakes where people can boat or simply enjoy being by the water. I grew up in Chautauqua County and fondly remember chasing hot air balloons around with my parents and sister on hot evenings; summer is a beautiful time of year in this part of the state. (Check out the Chautauqua County Visitor’s Bureau website for more information about what to do in the region!)

In conjunction with copious things to do, places to go, and people to see, this region is home to Chautauqua Institution. After nine weeks of intensive programming, lectures, and religious dialogue, everything will conclude this coming Sunday night with the Chautauqua’s IMG_4597President’s traditional speech, and then the customary three taps of the gavel. Despite everything to look forward to this fall, including apple cider, sweater weather, changing leaves, and spending time with family/friends, it can be difficult to leave places like Chautauqua or abandon the summer activities you’ve enjoyed during these warm months.

On behalf of everyone at Bush, we wish you good days as you conclude your summer and drift toward autumn. As an integral part of the community and Jamestown’s fascinating furniture legacy, Bush Industries is proud to be located here in the western New York region year-round. As the season changes, we hope you consider us for your back-to-school and autumn decoration ideas. For now, enjoy the remaining lazy, hazy, crazy days, and know that next year’s warm breezes are never too far away. On behalf of the team here at Bush, we hope you’ve been having a very good summer!

This has been a beautiful summer thus far in Western New York! With lots of sunny days and comfortable temperatures, everyone has been able to enjoy their time with friends and family to the fullest extent. As these days slip gracefully into fall, however, it will be time to think about going back to school. Stores are already thrilled about pushing their back-to-school discounts, and children are getting excited about their new school supply lists.

When I was young, these lists were often printed and sent to office supply stores around the area so we would know what our teachers wanted us to buy. Despite how much I loved summer, I remained consistently excited about purchasing my own new school things. In particular, I loved getting pretty colored folders and notebooks that I hoped would hold up throughout the year.  shutterstock_163556519

Most importantly, aside from the cursory notebooks, pens, and pencils, children need a comfortable place to do their work at home. Establishing consistency in a designated “homework spot” helps get them into a routine and be diligent about completing their work, even from an early age. Without having to shift papers and projects off the dining room table when it comes time to eat,  (Stay tuned for a further blog about good study habits!)
